They were produced before a magistrate and have been sent to jail,” said Rajesh Kumar Singh, Circle Officer, Hapur (city), who is investigating the case.He refused to comment on the constables’ role in the case. “It is still a matter of investigation.” He said two other accused, SHO Yogesh Baliyan and sub-inspector Ajab Singh, who were under suspension, were still on the run.Deputy Superintendent of Police Santosh Mishra, who was also named in the FIR and transferred to Garhmukteshwar after the incident, has already been given a clean chit in the case.Mr. Tomar, 35, died on the intervening night of October 13 after he was picked by the police from the Chhijarasai toll booth in Pilakhuwa. The police had claimed he was picked up for questioning in connection with a murder case. However, Mr. Tomar’s family, including his 10-year-old son who was allegedly present when his father was picked up, claimed that he was tortured by the police personnel.Based on the complaint of the deceased’s brother Kuldeep, an FIR was registered against six police personnel under stringent Sections of the Indian Penal Code.last_img read more

Flyers Ground The Devils, 4-1

first_imgPHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers opened a crucial homestand needing wins any way they could get them. A variety pack of goals was the perfect way to start.Matt Read and Sean Couturier each had a goal and an assist to lead the Flyers to a 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Dec. 11.The Flyers scored short-handed, on the power play, even strength, and into an empty net. Wayne Simmonds scored the power-play goal, and Jakub Voracek added the empty-netter to seal the win.The Flyers earned the win after dropping four of five on the road. Three of the four losses were by one goal. They have dropped to the bottom portion of the Eastern Conference and need to make the most of the four-game homestand to jump back into postseason contention.“It’s huge, especially if we want to stay in the playoff race,” Couturier said.They got an unexpected lift from Read, who has only three goals and seven assists in 28 games. He had one of each in the first period, giving the Flyers a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.“I just keep shooting pucks, getting in front of the net, getting in the hard areas,” Read said. “Things kind of bounced my way tonight.”With Steve Mason 0-5 against the Devils, Ray Emery got the start for the Flyers. Emery was 0-4 with a 4.12 GAA in his last four starts. But he was hardly tested with 17 saves against the Devils for his fifth win of the season — matching Mason’s total in eight fewer games.Emery improved his career record against New Jersey to 8-4-0-2 with a 1.78 GAA.Not even the return of leading goal scorer Mike Cammalleri (11) could spark the Devils. Cammalleri returned after missing two games with a strained gluteus muscle. “Maybe we’ve got to get a little greasier, get to the net and find ways to get a little of the sandpaper to our game around the net,” he said.The Flyers scored first on perhaps one of the unlikeliest of scenarios for a team that has struggled as much as any playing short-handed. The Devils had been spectacular of late, killing 44 of 49 power plays against during the last 14 games.But with the Devils down a player early in the first, Couturier scored his sixth goal for Philadelphia’s first short-handed goal of the season.They scored at even strength, too. Couturier blindly passed the puck in front of the net, Read pounced and stuck it past Cory Schneider for the 2-0 lead. “I just fired backdoor,” Couturier said. “Luckily, he was there.”Read scored 24 goals in the 2011-12 season and 22 last season, leaving him mystified about the cause of his season-long slump. He had his first multipoint game since April 6, 2014, against Buffalo and scored for the first time since Nov. 15.“Coot’s pass was pretty lucky, it went through about three guy’s skates and landed right on my tape,” Read said.The Flyers entered 13th in the Eastern Conference and seven points out of a playoff spot. With home games ahead against Carolina, Tampa Bay and Florida, now is the time for the Flyers to gain ground.The Devils scored their lone goal in the second when Martin Havlat scored a power-play goal for the Devils. Havlat tipped Scott Gomez’s slap shot from along the boards to cut it to 2-1.The Devils have lost two straight. “We didn’t panic with the 2-0 deficit,” said Schneider, who had 32 saves. “We stuck with it and got one on the power play, but they played pretty solid.”Simmonds’ 12th goal stretched the lead to 3-1.(DAN GELSTON, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Elevated air pollution associated with increased risk for miscarriage

first_img Source:https://uofuhealth.utah.edu/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Dec 6 2018Air quality has been associated with numerous adverse health outcomes from asthma to pre-term birth. Researchers at University of Utah Health found women living along the Wasatch Front — the most populous region in the state of Utah — had a higher risk (16 percent) of miscarriage following short-term exposure to elevated air pollution. The results are available online on December 5 in the journal Fertility and Sterility.”Not being from Salt Lake originally, I noticed a pattern in the relation to air quality and pregnancy loss,” said Matthew Fuller, M.D., assistant professor of Surgery at U of U Health and senior author on the paper. “I knew this was an understudied question so we decided to dig deeper.”Fuller joined University of Utah research analyst Claire Leiser on a retrospective study consisting of more than 1,300 women (54 percent Caucasian, 38 percent Hispanic, and other/missing 8 percent; average age 28 years). The women in the study sought help at the U of U emergency department following a miscarriage (up to 20-weeks gestation) between 2007 to 2015.The team examined the risk of miscarriage during a three- or seven-day window following a spike in the concentration of three common air pollutants: small particulate matter (PM 2.5), nitrogen dioxide and ozone. The study excluded women who lived outside Utah.”We are really only seeing the most severe cases during a small window of time,” said Leiser, first author on the paper. “These results are not the whole picture.”Leiser notes the results suggest there could be an increased risk for an individual. Their research only captured women who sought help at an emergency department at one hospital in the region. It does not account for women who may have sought outpatient care through their obstetric or primary care providers.The team found a slight increased risk in miscarriage for women exposed to elevated levels of nitrogen dioxide (16 percent for 10 ppb increase during the seven-day window). Although small particulate matter does track with nitrogen dioxide, these results did not significantly associate with an increased risk of miscarriage.Related StoriesPM2.5 exposure before and after birth associated with reduction in fundamental cognitive abilitiesInternational tourists are more susceptible to harmful effects of air pollutionInhaling irritant that mimics air pollution changes defensive heart-lung reflex for hypertension”While we live in a pretty unique geographic area, the problems we face when it comes to air pollution are not unique,” said Fuller. “As the planet warms and population booms, air pollution is going to become a bigger problem not only in the developing world but across the United States.”The Wasatch Front experiences short-periods of poor air quality, primarily during the winter months, when inversions trap pollutants close to the ground (for the 7-day window: PM2.5min= 0.3?g/m3; PM2.5max= 73.0 ?g/m3; O3 min= 4 ppb; O3 max= 80 ppb; NO2 min= 0.5ppb; NO2 max= 65ppb). The researchers tracked air quality by zip code, establishing six designated air basins within the Wasatch Front. They compared air quality in each basin to their patients’ outcomes.The team conducted a case cross-over study that estimated a woman’s risk of miscarriage multiple times in a month where air pollution exposure varied. This approach removed other risk factors, like maternal age, from the study. The scientists were unable to ascertain the age of the fetus at the time of the miscarriage and were unable pinpoint a critical period when the fetus may be most vulnerable to pollutants.”The results of this study are upsetting, and we need to work together as a society to find constructive solutions,” Fuller said.Fuller recommends women speak with their doctor about any health concerns. Women can manage the risk by using a N95 particulate respirator face mask to filter out pollutants or avoid outdoor physical activity on poor air quality days. Women can also use filters to lower indoor pollution and, if possible, time conception to avoid seasonal episodes of poor air quality.last_img read more

A cost and resource analysis of sodiumion batteries

More information: Christoph Vaalma et al. A cost and resource analysis of sodium-ion batteries, Nature Reviews Materials (2018). DOI: 10.1038/natrevmats.2018.13 Provided by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Regions with highly concentrated reserves: the ‘lithium triangle’ in South America and, for cobalt, the Copperbelt in Central Africa. Credit: Nature Reviews Materials Explore further Cobalt is a fundamental cathode component in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), determining the high energy and power density as well as the long lifetime. However, as outlined in the article by Dr. Christoph Vaalma et al., cobalt is toxic and scarce. “In general, the rapidly growing market penetration of LIBs for electromobility applications, such as fully electric cars, will lead to an increasing demand for raw materials, especially with respect to lithium and cobalt,” says Professor Stefano Passerini, who supervised the study together with Dr. Daniel Buchholz at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm.Their scenario-based analysis of the applications of batteries through 2050 shows that cobalt shortages and price increases are likely to occur, since cobalt demand could be twice as high as today’s identified reserves. In contrast, today’s identified lithium reserves are expected to be much less strained, but the production will have to be strongly upscaled (possibly more than 10 times, depending on the scenario) to match the future demand. However, both elements are geographically concentrated in countries reported to be less politically stable. According to the researchers, this gives rise to concerns about a possible shortage and associated price increase of LIBs in the near future. “It is therefore indispensable to expand research activities toward alternative battery technologies in order to decrease these risks and reduce the pressure on cobalt and lithium reserves,” says Daniel Buchholz. Stefano Passerini, HIU deputy director. “Post-lithium systems are especially appealing for electromobility and stationary applications. This is why it is both very important and urgent to unlock their potential and develop these innovative, high-energy batteries towards market maturity.”These results are further confirmed by the global scenario for battery applications in the field of electromobility through the year 2050, recently developed at HIU and published as a book chapter. “The future availability of cobalt for the mass production of LIBs has to be classified as very critical, which is also evident from the price increase of cobalt higher than 120 percent within one year (2016-2017),” says HIU system analyst Dr. Marcel Weil. In addition, the establishment of a battery economy with a high rate of recycling would certainly be imperative to decrease the pressure on critical materials.Both studies highlight the importance of new battery technologies based on low-cost, abundant and nontoxic elements, demonstrating the importance of further development in order to decrease the pressure on critical resources. To address this need, KIT and University of Ulm joined their efforts in the proposal for a Cluster of Excellence Energy Storage Beyond Lithium: New Storage Concepts For A Sustainable Future, focusing on the development of sodium-ion, magnesium-ion and other batteries based on abundant materials. The Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the Justus-Liebig University Gießen are also involved in these efforts.

Analysis by researchers at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) shows that the availability of both elements could become seriously critical. Cobalt-free battery technologies, including post-lithium technologies based on non-critical elements such as sodium, but also magnesium, zinc, calcium and aluminium, represent possibilities to avoid this outcome in the long term.

Facebook uncovers new global misinformation operations

first_imgFacebook said its latest action on Tuesday morning resulted from four investigations—three involving Iran, one involving Russia.The first focused on a group called “Liberty Front Press” that set up multiple accounts on Facebook and Instagram that were followed by 155,000 other accounts. The group was linked to Iranian state media based on website registrations, IP addresses and administrator accounts, Facebook said. The first accounts were created in 2013 and posted political content about the Middle East, the U.K., and the U.S., although the focus on the West increased starting last year, Facebook said.”The Iranians are now following the Kremlin’s playbook,” said Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee. On Sept. 5, leaders of Facebook, Google and Twitter are scheduled to testify before the intelligence committee about their efforts to combat political disinformation on their social media networks.FireEye called the Liberty Front Press group an influence operation apparently aimed at promoting Iranian political interests “including anti-Saudi, anti-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian themes” and support for the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal.President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from that agreement earlier this year.While that group did not appear to be attempting to influence the U.S. midterms, FireEye said its analysis “does not preclude such attempts being made.” Several social media personas it found related to the group masqueraded as liberal U.S. activists who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders. One persona also used the Twitter handle “@berniecratss” and listed its location as the United States even though the phone number associated with it began with Iran’s country code, +98.The group’s activity included “significant anti-Trump messaging,” but FireEye said in a detailed report “the activity extends well beyond U.S. audiences and U.S. politics.”The second group also had multiple accounts and 15,000 followers. The group was linked to “Liberty Front Press” and attempted to hack people’s accounts to spread malware. Facebook said it disrupted those attempts.A third group also operated out of Iran had as many as 813,000 followers, and also shared political content about the Middle East, the U.K. and U.S.In all the Iranian-linked groups spent some $12,000 in advertising and hosted 28 different events.A fourth group that attempted to influence politics in Syria and the Ukraine was connected to sources that Facebook said the U.S. had linked to Russian military intelligence.”We’re working closely with U.S. law enforcement on this investigation,” Facebook said in a blog post .In late July, Facebook also removed 32 apparently fake accounts on Facebook and Instagram that collectively had nearly 300,000 followers, including thousands that expressed interest in events they promoted. Facebook finds ‘sophisticated’ efforts to disrupt elections (Update) In this April 4, 2013 file photo, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg walks at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. Facebook said Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018, that it had removed 652 pages, groups, and accounts linked to Russia and Iran for “coordinated inauthentic behavior” that included the sharing of political content amid stepped-up policing of its own platform ahead of the U.S. midterm elections in November. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File) The social network said Tuesday that it had removed 652 pages, groups, and accounts linked to Russia and, unexpectedly, Iran, for “coordinated inauthentic behavior” that included the sharing of political material.Facebook has significantly stepped up policing of its platform since last year, when it acknowledged that Russian agents successfully ran political influence operations on its platform that were aimed at swaying the 2016 presidential election. Other social media networks have done likewise, and continue to turn up fresh evidence of political disinformation campaigns.Facebook’s action in late July against 32 accounts possibly linked to Russia generally involved U.S. political activity ahead of the midterm elections in November. By contrast, the latest group of apparently fake accounts appeared more intent on influencing U.S. foreign policy and regional politics in the Middle East.Shortly after Facebook’s announcement, Twitter revealed that it had also suspended 284 accounts for “coordinated manipulation,” many of them apparently originating from Iran. A day earlier, Microsoft also reported a new Russian effort to impersonate conservative U.S. websites , potentially as part of an espionage campaign.The social network said it had not concluded its review of the material and declined to say how or why the state-backed actors were behaving the way they did. But it said it has informed the U.S. and U.K. governments as well as the U.S. Treasury and State departments because of ongoing sanctions against Iran.”There’s a lot we don’t know yet,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on a hastily called conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon.”You’re going to see people try to abuse the services in every way possible … including now nation states,” he said. He described the deception campaigns as “sophisticated and well-funded efforts that aren’t going to stop.”FireEye, a cybersecurity firm that alerted Facebook to some of this activity, noted that it “does not appear to have been specifically designed to influence the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, as it extends well beyond U.S. audiences and U.S. politics.” Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Suddenly — poof — a cloud of what looks like cotton candy explodes toward the ceiling. This popular video on Twitter comes courtesy of the Malay-language account w, which shares science content. But what is going on in the video? It’s a rather dangerous version of a classic chemistry demonstration, according to Brian Hostetler, an educator at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The reaction is typically known as “elephant’s toothpaste,” due to its foamy appearance, and it’s commonly used in chemistry classrooms to explain catalysts, Hostetler told Live Science. [Elementary, My Dear: 8 Little-Known Elements]Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Why Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea?01:53 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65793-cotton-candy-explosion-explained.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35  Easy but explosive The reaction uses cheap, easy-to-access ingredients: hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, potassium iodide and food coloring. Hydrogen peroxide is key. It’s made up of two hydrogen and two oxygen molecules. The bonds between these molecules naturally break, so over time, hydrogen peroxide slowly becomes water and oxygen gas. That reaction happens faster when exposed to light, Hostetler said, which is why hydrogen peroxide is sold in brown bottles. Normally, the slow breakup (or decomposition, in chemistry terms) of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen is unnoticeable. But the elephant’s toothpaste experiment speeds the process with a catalyst, a chemical compound that increases the rate of a given reaction. Potassium iodide — a salt of iodine, and the dietary supplement that’s used to add iodine to table salt — provides that catalyst. “In the presence of potassium iodide, hydrogen peroxide decomposes almost immediately,” Hostetler said. The setup is simple. Hydrogen peroxide is mixed with dish soap, and food coloring is often added for a dramatic effect (which explains the cotton-candy pink in the Twitter video). The potassium iodide is added, and the iodide ion that’s part of that compound attracts the oxygen in the hydrogen peroxide, breaking the bonds and rapidly transforming the hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen gas. The oxygen molecules then get trapped by the soap, forming bubbles, Hostetler said. In a step sometimes added to the elephant’s toothpaste demonstration, a glowing splint — a strip of wood that is hot but not burning — that is inserted into the bubbles will catch alight, sparked by the pure oxygen. Toning it down Usually, Hostetler said, the elephant’s toothpaste experiment creates an oozy concoction. So why did the Twitter version send bubbles flying toward the ceiling? That particular reaction was due to the strength of the ingredients and the shape of the containers, Hostetler said. A fairly safe version of the elephant’s toothpaste demonstration can be done at home with 3% hydrogen peroxide bought from the drugstore, with yeast as the catalyst (yeast contains the enzyme catalase, which also breaks down bonds in hydrogen peroxide). The combination will ooze and get a little warm as the reaction releases heat, but other than the need to take care not to touch the “toothpaste,” as hydrogen peroxide can be irritating to skin and eyes, this DIY version is pretty safe. The Twitter video probably shows the reaction with 30% hydrogen peroxide, or even stronger, Hostetler said. The demonstrator also uses potassium iodide that’s in powder form instead of mixed into water. And he has it poured in three batches at once into a large container with a lot of surface area, so the reaction happens across a large amount of hydrogen peroxide all at one time. That makes the scene in the video “super-duper dangerous,” Hostetler said. Thirty percent or higher hydrogen peroxide can cause chemical burns on the skin, he said, and the reaction could heat the solution by hundreds of degrees. It’s that heat and steam from the reaction that floats some of the foam skyward in the Twitter video. The bottom line, Hostetler said, is not to try the jumbo version of the demonstration at home – but feel free to press “play” again on Twitter. “It’s a cool video,” he said.
